Import WAB file to LN 4.6 Client

Hi,

Got the MD's old laptop and he's created a WAB file and wants it in LN.

I've tried importing it to a Comma Separated Values Text File and importing it but it doesn't show the details correct, ie, the Name is showing the address or phone number.

Also, I have tried saving it as a Text (MS-DOS) and Text (Tab delimited) in Excel and import it that way but it doesn't show up in the Local address book although the document counter on the workspace has risen 500 each time which is about right.

Any ideas?

Outlook isn't installed so I don't have immediate access to covert it to PST files.

Thanks

Read your file in Excel, and place an extra row on top, containing the names of the fields where the info is to be placed. Save it as a Lotus-123 file, extension .wk4

Import the file as a Lotus-123 file in the N&A-book. For the fieldnames, you have to open the design or to look at the fieldnames in the document properties of an existing document.
